New South Wales: Uki
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Uki is an historic village in the Northern Rivers of NSW situated in the foothills of Wollumbin (Mount Warning).

Located on the South Arm of the Tweed River, Uki was once a centre for cedar getting in the mid 1850s. By the early 1900s nearly all vegetation was cleared. This clearing of the Big Scrub became a reserve for travelling stock with dairy farming, butter production and sawmilling becoming the primary forms of industry in the area for a number of years, before giving way to beef cattle, after rationalisation of the dairy farm industry. Production of tropical fruits is another popular form of industry in the town.

Featuring a number of historic buildings, Uki and the surrounding region offers a range of attractions including bush walking, swimming, canoeing, fishing and horse riding. There's also arts and crafts, weekend markets, abundant accommodation choices, plus alternative / natural therapy practitioners operating in the town.
